A fine example of Apocalypse slapstick, which is really the only way to treat the eschatological, no? ( )

SOOOO irreverent, but so funny lol!!! ( )

This is a whimsical story about the events leading up to the Apocalypse. The writing is very reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Christopher Fluke. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants a fun read.

With the end near and angels and demons debating the finer political points of the Apocalypse, Christine and Mercury accidentally foil an attempt to assassinate one Karl Grissom, a thirty-seven-year-old film school dropout about to make his big break as the Antichrist. Now, to save the world, she must negotiate the byzantine bureaucracies of Heaven and Hell and convince the apathetic Mercury to take a stand, all the while putting up with the obnoxious mouth-breathing Antichrist"--Cover.… (more)
